Thailand Travel Information

 

Bangkok
In 2002, Bangkok will celebrate 220 years as the nation's capital, a milestone that coincides with the opening of the city's first subway system.

Northern Region
The North's 17provinces comprise two distinct areas: the wide plains of the lower north from Nakhon Sawan up to Sukhothai, leading into the mountainĀ­ous upper north that has long borders with Myanmar and Laos.
